  • Governing Board Calls for November Bond and Budget Override Election

    The Phoenix Union High School District Governing Board has called for a 15 percent Maintenance and Operations Budget Override and Bond election for November 7, 2017.  The action was taken at the May 4 Governing Board meeting.

    The election will be a mailed ballot-only election with ballots mailed to qualified electors residing within the District.

    The override asks voters for authorization to continue the current 15 percent override for  fiscal year 2018-2019 and six subsequent years.  This would be a continuation of the existing override approved by voters in 2013.  There would be no additional taxes if the override is approved.  The override provides for over 400 teachers and support staff that directly impacts students and student achievement.

    The bond would be for $269 million to fund capital improvements over and above those funded by the state.  The District annual capital budget has been cut from $21 million to just under $2 million since the Recession.  The bulk of the bond would fund maintenance, and renovation of school buildings and technology.
